Even after getting hurt, Williams had to throw up an O-H as he was carted off the field.

Add another

Gray all day

Legg's got the leg

It didn't look pretty, but West Virginia kicker Casey Legg's 25-yard field goal went through the uprights to give the Mountaineers the upset win. 

Best of the rest

Not the hurdle he hoped for 

Nebraska's Alante Brown tried to hurdle over a Michigan defender. Instead, he got hit in the region no man wants to be hit in.
